The Fast Lane or the Creative Lane

It seems to me that being an artist and running an internet business contradict each other.  Art is all about feelings and to do it well, one needs to take the time to live the moment.  The piece will be much richer if the artist has allowed their mind and their feelings to truly enmesh into the moment they are creating.  

On the other hand, the internet is a buzz of activity changing not daily by rather by the moment.  Never before has the phrase, "You snooze, you loose." been more true.  There is constant pressure to be here, there, and everywhere posting about all that you are doing.  And if you don't post new work every few days - well, you're just late and out of the loop.  

So how does one keep one foot in the fast lane and the other in the slower more creative trail?  I'm not sure I know the answer to this.  Perhaps you do.  If you have pearls of wisdom on this subject, would you take just a moment out of your fast lane and share it with us here?  I'd love to know.
Thank you!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! Completely understand about creative endeavours and the www! I had to find a balance again last year and gave up twitter, reduced FaceBook and generally just cut down on the internet. Love blogging though! Marie x

Well! Being on the short side of 70 I got rid of Pinterest,the netwoked thing and then said self...only blog when you have something to share. Doesn't have to be art,just life,an opinion or hop on the soapbox.
Enjoy blogging-for you! Don't worry about who reads it or what they think. Consider it a record of life in general!
Love your blog for you! Hugs

I have no idea either. I do like what artistamyjo (above) had to say, and I've cut back on blogging and I have a Twitter acct but rarely use it. There just isn't enough time to do everything. I absolutely love your art!
